According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, certain 2020 model year Buick Enclaves, Cadillac XT5s, GMC Acadias and Chevrolet Traverse crossovers, as well as 2020 to 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 trucks, are affected by a General Motors recall on overcured tires. If your utility vehicle or pickup is fitted with Continental rubber, those tires may be defective.

Due to the overcuring, the tires could experience a sidewall break, which can lead to a sudden loss of air pressure and of control; belt-edge separation is another potential issue that could result in a crash.

Only around 7,500 vehicles should be affected by the recall., and no injuries have yet occurred due to the aforementioned issues.
